Collateral Damage

you asked me why I was afraid of commitment
and I wanted to tell you that it was because
I was afraid of breaking my insides
of spreading apart my rib cage far enough
for anyone to see the cold dying thing it trapped behind its bars
that I might have to explain why my heart had no steady rhythm
and my blood hasn't flowed through my veins in years
that I couldn't fathom how anyone could love this
body that I hate so much

[Hata Bildir]
